Feed the Children has announced the addition of a new member to its board of directors. Oklahoma City-native, Dr. Cody Elledge, has joined the global nonprofit’s board to help further its mission to provide hope and resources for those without life’s essentials.
After earning his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Parker University in 2006, he opened Elledge Chiropractic & Acupuncture. In addition to his practice, he owns several other businesses throughout the Oklahoma City area.
He has been recognized, locally and nationally, by his peers in the chiropractic community for his expertise in outstanding patient care and educational instruction throughout the U.S.
